Genting Hong Kong chairman and CEO Lim Kok Thay resigned on Monday. 

The cruise company filed to wind up its operations last week, and provisional liquidators have been appointed.

Genting HK is the parent company of Crystal Cruises, which announced last week that it would pause operations

On Friday, a federal district court in Miami issued a warrant for the Crystal Symphony cruise ship because of more than $2 million in unpaid fuel bills.

The Symphony, which was near the end of a cruise that was scheduled to conclude in Miami, changed course for the Bahamas instead, where Crystal's ships are flagged. 

After a night in Bimini, Symphony passengers were transported to Florida via ferry.

CORRECTION: A previous version of this report incorrectly said that Genting had filed to end operations. According to its filing, certain activities of the group, such as Dream Cruises, will continue to operate, and that it was "anticipated" that a majority of the group would cease to operate. Crystal Cruises is on pause.
